Help going through PA

Leaving tonight for a 4k trip to NH. (maybe a primer for Shrugfest 2013?? )

The plan is to blast up but take my time on the return.

I was going to take 81 all the way to 84 and do the Tappanzee thing, but speaking with someone who went through there recently I heard construction
north of Harrisburg was a real slowdown.

Now thinking of jumping on 78 to A-town to pick up 287 to 87 to 84.
I have never been on this stretch. Is that a good alternative? I want to stay west of the 95 horror-dor from washington to New Haven.

Have not been on either of those stretches in a while, BUT, I would think that your best choice may be your first one...81 to 84. Good luck and safe travels.

I am from Nova Scotia.Anytime I ride north from Maryland I take 81 North to 80 east Stroudsburg Pa. take 219 North through the Delaware watershed area to Milford then 84 east across the Hudson River to the Taconic parkway north.Its about 100 miles of nice rolling road (devided Hwy)watch you speed/radar/deer.Then 90 east to NH,VT,MA.Enjoy your trip.
